Don’t miss the opportunity to learn more about our Local Arts Grants and the application process.

Please RSVP directly to Carlos Sotelo at csotelo@morrisarts.org and let him know which session you will be attending. 

At this time, you will also have a chance to meet Carlos Sotelo who we hired recently as our new Local Arts Grant Manager and Director of Creative Placemaking.

Some of you will recognize Carlos as the person we hired last summer to manage the artistic programming at the Gateway Totem Project site at the Grow it Green Community Garden in Morristown. Some of you have also worked with Carlos on the Morris County Arts and Cultural Collaborative (MCACC). Our current project is “to create events, exhibitions and programs to recognize and appreciate the arts and cultures of the Latino communities in Morris County.” 
 
Carlos’ responsibilities will include Creative Placemaking, new program development, management of our Local Arts Grant Program, ADA Coordinator and support of local artists.  Carlos brings experience as a Community Organizer in Morristown having worked with Morristown United for Healthy Living and Wind of the Spirit. He has his BA in Spanish Language and Literature from FDU and has been working there on his Master’s Degree in Spanish Literature.
 
Carlos will  be at extension 17 at the office and his email will be: csotelo@morrisarts.org

We look forward to seeing you at one of our workshops on June 19th and Carlos is looking forward to meeting you all and getting out to see your work!
